logitech cordless buttons


I dont suppose anyone can help with this. I've got a new mouse which works fine except for the extra buttons. The scroll wheel can scroll sideways apparently and also zoom in. Otherwise it works fine. It's called Logitech Cordless Click! Plus rechargeable. I found a file in rpmdrake called lmctl-0.2-1mdk which is something to do with getting extra buttons to work with logitech mice. Assuming all I need to do is download it, it hasn't altered anything. It's a nice mouse by the way, and worked straight away without any problems.

I've got this mouse in a "Cordless Desktop LX 700" bundle, and it seems that is the same as the MX700 model. Well, I did configure it (surely not perfect) to get the bidirectional (wheel+tilt) as:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier                  "Logitech MX700-USB"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "CorePointer"
    Option "Protocol"           "evdev"
    Option "Buttons"            "10"
    Option "ButtonNumber"       "10"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"       "9 10 7 6"
    Option "Resolution"         "800"
    Option "Device"             "/dev/input/event2"
    Option "Dev Name"           "Logitech USB Receiver"
    Option "Dev Phys"           "usb-0000:00:02.0-1/input1"

EndSection
and
Code:
 xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 9 10 6 7 8 4 5"
But still digging to also set the thumbbuttons to work.

Scripting MX700 butons

I'm close to getting this to work with my MX700 on the USB port. Mandriva 2005 LE 64-bit

from /etc/X11/Xorg.conf

Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Logitech MX700"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ButtonNumber" "7"
    Option "Buttons" "7"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "layout1"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice "Logitech MX700" "CorePointer" 
    Screen "screen1"
EndSection
===========================

I can get everything to work my typing in my shell:

[dave@localhost home]$ xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"

However, I can't get this script to stick! After looking through the forums, I so far have:

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc :
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"

and

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/mouse_buttons :
xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"

and

/etc/X11/Xmodmap, as well as /home/dave/.Xmodmap
pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5

What am I missing? Any help would be very much appreciated!

I dont think my mouse is exactly the same as the mx700 but it's similar. It dosen't have the small buttons above and below the wheel. Just the one on top. Would your set-up work using ps/2?

Thanks for replies. Technically, I have 10 buttons on the MX700, but I only care about 7.

My specific question is how can I best automaticlly re-map the buttons (xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"). By default in my system, the scroll wheel is the ĘbackĘ function, making surfing and scrolling a real pain.

This'll be about the flavour you choosed for your desktop, I do it this way this in KDE:
Code:
rgawenda@dvn3:~$ cat .kde/Autostart/misc.sh
/usr/X11R6/bin/xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
eval "$(gpg-agent --daemon)"
